MPEG2 ---> Sony TV
Hi im a noob to video problems with all these new codecs and whatnot :D

Ive got my pc hooked upto my tv using a s-video to scart cable output. I can view my backup copies of family guy and all that just fine but what i cant view are svcds. They show up on my tv screen as a blank black screen.

I have had to use "force rgb mode" in bsplayer prefs and this works fine with the other .avi's on my pc as the tv uses rgb. Its just i can see the mpeg 2 movie on my pc monitor but not on my sony tv. Can u pls gimmie a bit of help as i am stoopid. Thanks a lot guv'na. Johnny.

PS If u cant answer my question can u put me in contact with any sites or forums that might help. Ta.

Is it possible for you to (also) select "Use RGB overlay"?

Johnny Carter 2nd May 2004 08:48 PM

i thought that too, but it says "no rgb overlays supported". what does this mean? is it my graphics card not supporting the overlay? or can it be solved by software?

OK it appears that your system doesn't support rgb overlays.
Unfortunately you did not give any information on your (video)hardware.
Have e.g. a look here

sorry, my system is:

AMD Athlon Xp 1800+

768Mb DDR233

NVidia GeForce FX 5200 (128Mb)

using svideo to scart cable attached to Sony 28" widescreen

bsplayer version 1.00 RC1 Build 807

k-lite codec pack 225 (with elecard/ligos Mpeg2)

nvidia desktop manager: clone mode

ive managed to change the settings in the mpeg2 configuration tool given to me by the k-lite codec pack, but now i am having problems with the picture:

1. either when some thing bright comes into the picture it makes everything really bright and glaring so you cant watch it

2. or the 16:9 ratio is inverted and it is 9:16 ratio and the film is long but not wide

3. or i can see nothing

i get these problems with different combinations of the following options from the k-lite codec mpeg2 configuration tool:

"connect to ligos splitter only"

"play mpeg-2 only"

"use overlay mixer"

HAve you tryied the Elecard MPEG2 decoder ? Works the same ?

Johnny Carter 3rd May 2004 12:11 PM

i have installed the elecard/ligos mpeg2 selection in k-lite codec pack

adicoto 3rd May 2004 02:40 PM

But you don't seem to mention anything about Elecard decoder. Elecard and Ligos are two different things.

Johnny Carter 3rd May 2004 07:03 PM

but i dont knwo what you want me to tell u, im a noob and all i know is that i have installed those options as i said.

adicoto 3rd May 2004 07:46 PM

On this link you'l find another links to needed codecs. Try to get rid of codecpacs. They are well intended but most of the time do just bad. So, try to uninstall codecpack and install codecs from those links.

Johnny Carter 3rd May 2004 07:49 PM

i installed them indivually beofre but it didnt work properly. I prefer to use packs as they always seem to work. apart from this problem viewing it on tv.
